    Hi Emmanuel, my doctor has never warned me about insect bites and I have been seeing him for 30 years now.

    Take pre-medication (antibiotics) for any dental work for sure.

    I have a cottage where I get biten regularly by mosquitoes, black flies, deer flies and horse flies at one time or another thru the year and have never had a problem.

    I think your reaction was just to the bite and nothing to do with HCM.

    I have never heard of anything relating bug bites to HCM. In this case I think we (those with HCM) are just like everyone else.

    All the best.

    Please talk to your doctor if you think you have contracted any infection from your bug bite, but having HCM doesn't make you suseptible to having a bad reaction to any bug bite.
